Age of Wonderment

  • Planting my flag in this age of wonderment with our new mascot, inspired by Albrecht Durer’s groundbreaking woodcut c.1515. Our homage to the early age of discovery is epitomized in Durer’s work.
  • Without seeing, but upon receiving a letter with description and second-hand sketch of the beast (thought mythological at the time), Durer created a masterpiece using his talent and divine imagination.
  • Join us in our current age of discovery at Heidi Pribell Interiors.

UpStage

  • Presented with the opportunity to acquire assets of a residential real estate staging business at an attractive price, established a home-staging company focused on high-end properties.
  • Helped clients create significant amounts of value by achieving sales in a sideways market.
  • What I thought of as an amusing sideline, became a full blown operation. Each job was individual, without formula. The furniture I warehoused ranged as broadly as my clothes closet — every style for any season. Pure theatre. The acrobatics of instantly furnishing a home in two days was a perfect outlet for my creative energies. But before I knew it, I was running a moving, storage and logistics business.
  • As part of a plan to focus solely on interior design clients, liquidated the business profitably in fall of 2014.
